      I am very interested in finding out more about Hugh Roy and his
      father, Hugh. Ellen Jane Roy and Robert James Roy (Age 2) left Ireland
      on board vessel "St Lawrence" and arrived in Sydney on 8 June, 1877.
      We are unable to discover when and how Hugh Roy came to Australia but
      he did sponsor his family's voyage.
